A history of sneezeguards
You may be surprised to learn that the development of a sneezeguard is not a recent invention. In fact, there are many industries that utilized a sneezeguard long before the outbreak of the coronavirus. One industry that used some variations of sneezeguards on a consistent basis were banks. This was due in large part not necessarily to protect against germs but to have an extra barrier between the teller and the customer just in case the customer turned out to be a robber.
Another place that have traditionally used sneezeguards before COVID-19 were bakeries. Although baked goods are always kept in display cases, a bakery may have an extra sneezeguard barrier installed as an added layer of protection between their cashier and the customer as the cashier is boxing or bagging up the customer’s order.
Industries that benefit from sneezeguards
In today’s day and age, there are an abundance of industries that have incorporated sneezeguards into their overall floor plan. For example, if you go to your local drug store to pick up your prescriptions, you may have noticed that there is now a sneezeguard barrier between you and the pharmacist or even the cashier when you go to check out.
The food service industry has also taken advantage of utilizing sneezeguards. If you maintain a drive thru option for your restaurant, you may want to consider adding a sneezeguard over the length of your drive thru window. This gives your employee the flexibility of passing the customer his or her food with minimal exposure to any potential germs.
Additionally, as restaurants begin to open, you should install a sneezeguard along the cashier section of your restaurant. This is particularly important as indoor dining begins to open. Taking this step also displays to your customers that you have taken every precaution to safeguard against any potential virus harm.
